how to use our written e-feedback service

What is Written e-Feedback? For a written e-feedback appointment, a CSC consultant will review your document and provide their suggested revisions in a response letter within 24 hours after the appointment time ends. For an example of a response letter download this file

When you book an appointment, you will receive more information by email on what to expect from the written e-feedback process. Please make sure that you are able to receive emails from the Q-Reserve booking system. You should plan to book your written e-feedback appointment several days before your deadline so that you have time to complete suggested revisions and clarify any follow-up questions.

You will require:

  • Your CWL
  • An internet connection, and
  • A document you would like feedback on.
